Self-love has been so underrated. But did you know the positive effects it could bring to your life?
Some people find it cringe when they hear about self-love. There’s nothing to feel embarrassed about it. In today’s world, the need for self-love is very much essential.
The truth about the world is, you are actually alone. You need to take care and give yourself all the love first.
When it comes to romantic relationships, if you don’t have self-love, it’s going to affect your relationship. When you are not in love with yourself, how would you want others to fall in love with you?
You should get to know yourself better, understand what your principles and desires are, only then you will be able to portray your love to others.
You will not find happiness anywhere if you can’t find it with yourself.
It’s very crucial to be in a relationship with yourself before getting into a romantic relationship.
When you love yourself, you tend to stand brighter. Because it feels like someone is cheering for you and that’s someone you.
You will become more confident.
Most people are unaware of this concept. It is fundamental to love yourself and know yourself.
Because when you do, you are clear about what you want to achieve.
This concept astonishes people. Because though it’s something fundamental, it’s not made necessary. It’s not taught in schools. Lack of self-love can be attained even without realising it. People ignore themselves. They don’t think about what kind of person they are. All these concepts might feel absurd to some people. But in reality, the effects it has on one’s life is remarkable.
Tell yourself – you are worthy, you matter, your opinions matter.
Give consideration and love to yourself. You deserve more than what you give.
When you are in a relationship with yourself, you can determine how your connections could be with others. When you are unaware of it, you will feel awfully lonely when you are heartbroken or when you encounter something tragic.
Self-love makes you very strong. You can give yourself what you need. You need not to rely on anybody else. You can tell yourself the words you want to hear. You are worth being a support to yourself. Nothing can ever make you feel the way you could.
This is something important people should be made aware of. Self-love is making yourself healthy. In a world of today where most people, especially youngsters, are unable to cope up with difficulties that they go to an extent to take their lives.
It breaks my heart to see how these young people could’ve been saved by themselves if they knew how to love themselves.
You should always remember that you are unique and worthy. No matter what others tell you, listen to yourself. Listen to the words you want to hear.
Be your own strength.
Your self-worth will determine your relationship
When you have no value for yourself, you tend to set low standards on how you want the others to treat you. Just like how you don’t safeguard things that don’t consider necessary, you will tend to lose yourself, and you can’t expect a decent amount of love.
Observe the way you treat yourself and the way you let others treat you. Notice the standards you set. You will then understand if you are giving enough love to yourself or not.
Learning to love yourself is easy. Treat yourself like you are treating someone you actually love. Set standards for yourself. How do you want others to treat you?
If someone is very harsh to you, you know that’s not how you want to be treated, remove yourself from such a situation.
If there’s a need to fight back for what feels right to you, you should step forward and fight for it.
When you care for yourself, you tend to live well.
Self-care is about your belief. It is needed that you take care of yourself. If you don’t, you are doing wrong by giving your neglected version to your partner. This will reciprocate to provide you with a neglected and ignored relationship.
Give yourself all it needs. Feed yourself well, enjoy various activities. Spend time doing your favourite hobbies and see how brightly it’ll affect your life.
Self-care is not selfish. Self-care is what every human need. You need this time; you need to give yourself this attention and care.
Your Void is of your own
It’s most likely that you want to find comfort and support from another person. But if you are unable to console yourself, you can’t expect anybody else to.
Even if it seems like they are useful, the only person who can save you from all your struggles is yourself.
Don’t neglect yourself. Pick yourself up; you have the energy you need.
You can’t expect your partner to your emotional counsellor. You should fight and able to come out of your struggles on your own. The first person to save you should be yourself, and only then you can seek for external support if you want.
If you have enough self-love and self-care, you are powerful enough yo overcome anything in the world.
Being emotionally safe
Relationships require emotional safety. You could express yourself openly and honestly to the other. When you don’t value yourself, you are not emotionally open to yourself, and it’s saddening.
If you are not entirely vulnerable to yourself, you’ll find it very hard to be vulnerable to your partner.
It is needed that you know your emotional self well. You need to emotionally safe and available to yourself.
Your stronger-self influences and creates your relationship.
You must know that nobody knows you better than you do. That’s a fact. Your relationship is influenced and created by you. That inner self tells you what is right. You have somebody that will guide you and that it yourself.
When you understand yourself thoroughly, you understand what kind of person you need. When you have a clear idea about what you desire and how you want to be treated, getting into a healthy relationship becomes more comfortable for you.
If you have not explored the concept of self-love, then you are starting today, right this moment.
You deserved to be loved by yourself, and you deserve to be loved by others. The world becomes brighter once you start loving yourself.
